DENISON HOMESTEAD MUSEUM TO BE
SETTING OF FILM DOCUMENTARY


MYSTIC, CT (May 6-8, 2008) – The Denison Homestead Museum this week will be host to the filming of scenes for a documentary based on the life of Frederick Douglas. Thomas Moore, Executive Producer of Palace Production Center-Docere Palace Studios/Rabbit Ears of Norwalk, CT approached the Homestead Museum earlier this year asking to film numerous scenes of his documentary on the historic grounds and amongst the rooms of the Homestead Museum.

Filming is slated to take place from May 6-May 8, 2008 at the Denison Homestead Museum located at 120 Pequotsepos Road in Mystic, CT. The Homestead’s historic buildings and grounds made it a prime candidate for scenes in the documentary. Although not affiliated with the life of Frederick Douglas, the Homestead Museum is honored to be chosen by Thomas Moore for this monumental documentary.

The Denison Society is charged with the preservation of this historic family home located in Mystic, CT, and with stewardship of the surrounding land—140 acres, part of the original land grant Captain George Denison was given for service to the early Pequot militia. The Denison Homestead Museum will be officially open to the public on May 30th. Further information on upcoming programs and events can be found at www.denisonsociety.org.
